The fruit for Hills Are Alive is sourced from hand-tended blocks in the Mt Pleasant sub-region of the far northen Adelaide Hills. Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malolactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new and well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a winestyle with purity of fruit that is eappealing and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
